BNP Paribas Asset Management (BNPP AM) has launched a US Small Cap Equity actively managed mutual fund, shortly following the launch of the Emerging Markets Total Return Fixed Income mutual fund in December 2017.

The BNPP AM US Small Cap Equity Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio of quality companies. The fund will aim to identify companies that have competitive advantages which have the potential to sustainably grow their earnings, in an attempt to produce attractive long-term risk adjusted returns. The team exploits opportunities by developing differentiated views based on market inefficiencies and in-depth research.

Total equities AUM for all of BNP Paribas Asset Management is USD110 billion.
 
The fund is low-cost and actively managed featuring attractive initial expense ratios of 0.75 per cent for institutional shares; 0.90 per cent for investor shares; and 1.15 per cent for retail shares.
 
The BNPP AM US Small Cap Equity Fund is now available for investment under the following tickers: Institutional Shares: BNPUX; Investor Shares: BNPVX and Retail Shares: BNPWX.
 
“Our mutual funds offer a practical and cost-efficient way to assist in building an actively managed diversified portfolio. They feature the benefits of our institutional money managers, while drawing on the best ideas of our fixed income and equity teams across a broad, global investable universe. The result is the potential for attractive risk-adjusted returns in an asset class that is in great market demand,” says John Barletta, Head of Wholesale Distribution at BNP Paribas Asset Management North America.
